Photo №4, scored > 3.1 thousand of views – photo_story of the “Deep evening”. For more information about photo_story have a look of comments to photos place #3, here (in previous post)


Photo №5, “Dad and daughter”, > 2.9 thousand of views, taken in my home studio. This is – my brother and his daughter. I did as usual lot of shots, just for “home album”. I like to shoot portraits. It is important to press the button when a person “open”. And to make it more and more, because then on the big screen it looks different then when shooting. Group portraits need to do a lot more shots, because all the characters should look good. When I looked at this picture something “caught” me. Therefore, I decided to share it with the Internet community.


Photo №6, “Venus Kallipiga”, > 2.8 thousand of views. It – one of the two sculptures  in Pavlovsk’s park that we like much more than any other. Generally, Pavlovsk – home residence of Russian tsars, has a powerful energetics. Every time when we visit St. Petersburg, we find a time for a trip to Pavlovsk, to walk in the park. And every time visit our “friends” – Tancredi and Kallipiga.  We shot Kallipiga with white background. One hold background, the other – shot. At the bottom of the picture it is shown. About Kallipiga – information from the note to a photo.
